Sometimes We Just Have to Get Naked

Sometimes, we just have to get naked Sometimes, we must bare our own soul Sometimes, we can no longer fake it Being ourselves becomes our new goal We are fitted for outfits by parents and teachers We are told what to think and how we should feel Once we get past the shame adorned by the preachers We learn it’s ourselves we ought to reveal Sometimes, we just have to get naked Sometimes, we must bare our own soul Sometimes, we can no longer fake it Being ourselves becomes our new goal So, don’t be afraid to share your own beauty Don’t be afraid to strip naked today Being true to yourself should be your new duty Those who can’t take it can just look away Sometimes, we just have to get naked Sometimes, we must bare our own soul Sometimes, we can no longer fake it Being ourselves becomes our new goal

Joe this is stunning! Since I joined the site in February I really do bare my soul and have discovered myself as a person - it could have been written for me or about me! Hugs Jan xxxx
